What-hey! That’s right, thanks to the efforts of Ubuntu All-Stars such as Michael Vogt and Adam Conrad, and VMware sharpshooters like Ben Gertzfield, you can suck down some of that VMware Player sweetness for your Ubuntu 6.06 LTS system right now.
No tarballs, no compiling kernel modules, no banging rocks together.
It’s as easy as: sudo apt-get install vmware-player
I SHIT YOU NOT.
(That ought to get the kiddie-filters going.)
Update: This appears to be a very popular post, so if you’re looking for more information about VMware of any variety on Ubuntu, make sure you check out the Ubuntu community’s VMware documentation page. Have fun!
